How to grow


Sow direct in warm conditions or raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and keep moist. Transplant when 5cm high.


Grow in sun. Enrich soil with organic fertiliser (such as Yates Blood & Bone or Dynamic Lifter) before planting. Feed plants regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food. Protect plants from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.


Can be eaten green but will become hotter as chillies mature. Great companion plant for basil, marjoram and parsley. After handling seed or fruit, wash hands well to avoid irritating skin or eyes.
